Instructions:

Note: Adults only should handle the serrated knife.

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; cut foam ball in half. Cut thin slice from rounded top of one half-ball to create flat cup bottom; save other half-ball for another use.
     
  2. Use back of tablespoon to press very shallow depression into center top of cup, leaving 1/4"-wide edge around rim.
     
  3. Cut pattern pieces from print fabric as indicated. Spread thin layer of white glue onto back of one fabric piece. Place fabric point at center bottom of cup, then smooth fabric up side and over rim; clip fabric as needed so it lays flat. Repeat with remaining fabric pieces to cover foam, overlapping edges slightly.
     
  4. Use compass or template to draw 2-1/4" circle onto wrong side of brown fabric for cocoa; cut out. Glue cocoa to top of cup.
     
  5. Use compass to draw 3" circle onto craft foam for saucer; cut out. Peel away backing paper and adhere to wrong side of print fabric; trim excess.
     
  6. Cut 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" strip from print fabric. Glue and wrap fabric around cardboard strip. Before glue dries completely, fold one short end over 1/4" and bend rest of strip into curved handle shape. Let dry.
     
  7. Use glue gun to glue cup to saucer and handle to cup, placing 1/4" tab near rim.
     
  8. For marshmallows, cut remaining foam half-ball into small pieces, approximately 1/2" square. Use fingers to gently mold foam into rounded rectangles. Glue small pile of marshmallows to center top of cup.
     
  9. Glue clothespin to bottom of saucer; clip to tree.
